Party time! Welcome if you are popping over from Jennifer at Thistlebear for the Winter Link Party. Today I am sharing a block-as-you-go method for blanket squares. All you need is a block of wood, four new unsharpened pencils and a drill.
My squares for my winter blanket vary in size even though they are all done in Stylecraft DK on the same size hook. I have made them over a two year period so the tension varies. It must have been how relaxed I was each time I did one at the cabin. So here's how I am getting them the same size....
Spraying each one as I stretch and layer them up.
I can block loads all at the same time. They can stay there as I join them up.
I left long ends to double crochet them together, I don't want any more ends than is strictly necessary.
If you are making a blanket for your winter project give this a try. I am glad my split chopping board got a new lease of life.
I hope that block idea inspires someone out there. Now what border shall I do?
Looking forward to perusing your winter projects.
Love from Jo xxx
